Dear Grace, I wish you would come and see me when you can. I am so weak, I fear it will be some time before I can get as far as Capitol Hill. Going to church yesterday, - the first time for ten days, - has used me up quite completely. But I hope to be able to attend the meeting to morrow, though I can not go if it rains, lest I should catch cold in this dreadful face, which is not quite well yet. Give my best love to Aunt Lizzie & Ernie. I wish Meg would come to see me. I do wish you lived nearer. It seems to me most of the friends I prize most are so far off.. I fear you'll hardly be able to read this scrawl. Do go to the meeting if you can.

Ever yours most lovingly

C.F. Grimke
